A certain xlsx file I work on refreshes (recalcc to cells) only when I save in Office 2010.
How come? How can I change it?

go to formulas and on the right there are calculation options, make sure it's automatic. –  Raystafarian Mar 26 '12 at 14:12

Excel will refresh when you press F9

Alternatively you could have a macro running that refreshed on a given time.

e.g.

Sub turnoff()
'Turn Off calculation and start call ontime routine
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual
Call DoTimer
End Sub

Sub DoTimer()
'Call the sheet calculation macro every one second
Application.OnTime Now + TimeValue("00:00:01"), "Rep"

End Sub

Sub Rep() ' calculate the sheet and repeat the ontime process
Sheet1.Calculate
Call DoTimer
End Sub

EDIT:

You can also check in Options - Formulas - Calculation Options to ensure that automatic calculations is turned on.

F9 indeed works, however in all other workbooks each time I change a cell all the dependent cells update automatically, that is the default behavior of Excel. Only this file acts weird. Do you know how I can reactivate the auto-refresh? –  Jonathan Mar 26 '12 at 14:07

Go into Options - Formulas - Calculation Options. (Top left) That's where it is set. –  Joe Taylor Mar 26 '12 at 14:18
